Nice escape from the business of downtown.

We took a couple hour break here so our 8 year old Son could have some fun. This is a very nice and clean park, and it had good kids play structures.

A pleasant well tended park. Nice to walk through. Lots to see and admire. A haven for walkers, runners and cyclists. Something for everyone in this park and all major sight seeing is easily accessible from the park

The park is beautiful and a very nice venue to run. Urban area. The running loop is around 3.5km so it is a distance that many people will feel very comfortable at. There is an ASICS shop just nearby where you can get a shower and a locker for 5Eur and they organize running clinics. If you feel hungry after... More

When visiting Amsterdam we decided to walk through Vondelpark as I read really good reviews about it. Park was full of cyclists, walkers, runners and dog walkers. Everyone was smiling and seemed happy. Loads of lakes and canals and few ice cream stalls. Lovely visit.

Very convenient, best place to relax after the tiring visits to shights and museums. Clean place, it's a little heaven into the city's noise.

Beautiful park to take long walks, ride the bike or run. It's a good option to spend some time reading and observing people. Very nice!

During the summer month in the park there is always a program, I personally love the dance that is mostly on fridays. So lovely to sit outside and enjoy the dance of the varying dance company's that show their competence. Sometimes great sometimes not to good but the atmosfhere is great and welcome.

It's nice to walk around, to spend time, to have a break between your sightseeing or bike rides. Or simply to hang out and picnic. It's huge and green and shady with big trees. I circled around it with my bike and it was really enjoyable. If you stop by, go to a cafe called Blauwe Theehuis for a cuppa... More
